Keywords:mobile video? energy efficiency? multimedia access?

Demand for mobile video has exploded. As the thirst for multimedia accessfrom anywhere at anytimecontinues to grow, so has the availability of TV-anywhere services. This has been a boon for service providers, eager to add new consumer applications to their portfolios, but it has also created a huge challenge for the supporting infrastructure equipment, not to mention leveling a potential conundrum: The performance required to process video from the media gateways must be tempered with low power that will not over-tax the infrastructure, but will provide cost containment and sustainability.

Advances in video transcoding implementations from new, alternative processors and the streaming architectures that support itsome of which can yield a real 15x power/density gain over processor technology typically used in today's infrastructure equipmentcan be part of the solution to ensure high-performance, low-power platforms for mobile video.
